And that UI different being something called "theme"... In my country Porsche version offered for 14xx$ but regular Pro version was just 750$

the only thing I complain now is that how come they go for single simcard slot ( for u.s.a version now ) not like the old huawei mate 9 is 4G LTE gsm ( dual simcard slot ) i like that dual sim for traveling outside u.s.a and you have the optiin of inserting roaming simcard from other country while your here in u.s :( I was aiming to owning mate 10 pro but now, I will pass because of this reason.

"the Mate 10 Pro has 128 GB, while the Mate 10 Pro doubles that to 256 GB" It should be "while the Mate 10 Porsche Design..."

The problem with Huawei isn't the phones The problem with Huawei isn't the phones, they are awesome, I loved my Mate 8 and still love my Mate 9 but the problem is service. I travel a lot for work and unlike Samsung and Apple who have service centers in all corners of the globe it is extremely hard to get service for Huawei in most places in the world and even in many States in the US. It is a sad disappointment for me because I actually really like the devices but I probably won't buy another because when things do go wrong there just isn't any service. I'm currently working in Hanoi and their is a service center here but they told me they won't service my Mate 9 because they don't sell that specific model in Vietnam. Super lame. The girl in the shop actually told me to fly to Taiwan to get service. That was her actual suggestion. Even after I offered to pay for the shipment of the needed parts and service from China to Vietnam, (literal neighbors), she still said she wouldn't help and I should fly to Taiwan or Hong Kong. For that cost I can just buy a new phone, likely not a Huawei, unfortunately. It is doubly unfortunate that Huawei can’t figure out the service side of things because they really do make great phones. My present struggles with Huawei service do bring back memories of poor service from Huawei not long after I bought my Mate 9. It was a little over a year ago and after buying the phone I wanted to switch all my household chargers over to USB 3 and get a nice case for my brand new thousand-dollar phone. The problem was and still is, because Huawei doesn’t have many of their own stores and in Taipei where I bought the phone they have exactly zero of their own stores. At the time of buying the phone Huawei didn’t even have an online store where you could buy accessories for the phone. You could buy the phone through one of their local partners but you couldn’t buy anything from them in a store or even online. I thought it was pretty weak because I have a couple of online stores myself and I know how easy they are to set up. So I was pretty disappointed that a billion dollar company couldn’t figure out how to create a couple of jobs at the same time as improving the customer experience surrounding their products. Here we are 14 months down the road and it seems the company still hasn’t figured out how to solve these really minor issues. At a time when they are spending millions of dollars on marketing trying to penetrate the US market it seems od to me to continue to neglect the other areas of customer experience that could help foster strong brand loyalty. I believe this service issue is a greater oversight than the company is capable of recognizing at present. The customers that will buy the high end versions of their phones are precisely the customers that will find themselves in need of service when away from their home country. People with higher salaries travel more and have a higher likelihood of have international jobs that
